Thermos Connected Hydration Water Bottle Review

Hey guys! It’s Tasty Tuesday!

For my Tasty Tuesday post I’m talking about hydration here today.

Why you might ask? Because water is vitally important for our bodies just as food and to me – there’s no better and tastier drink than water. I’m not into sweet beverages or basically anything else other than water (maybe with a little bit of lemon or lime). With very few exceptions water is what I drink before/during/after my workouts also.

Now, gather round, my gadget heads and technology geeks. 🙂

TV Without TV? Yes!

Hey guys! Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I hope you’re having a wonderful time with your families out there and that Turkey Trot attire is all ready to perform, and Turkey is ready to go into that oven!

I am here today to talk about something different than my usual post subjects, but I hope you enjoy it. Before we dive in though, I wanted to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for another great year with Lean Lena. If it wasn’t for you, this blog wouldn’t have existed. It would have been stuck somewhere between a food journal and an exercise log.

THANK YOU for your ever inspiring comments, your support and dedication in making me a better blogger and making Lean Lena a better resource for indoor cycling instructors, TRX coaches and yoga enthusiasts.

Profile and Playlist for Indoor Cycling: Muscle Magic

Hey guys! Time to share another profile and playlist with you.

This week’s indoor cycling / Spinning® class profile and playlist is called “Muscle Magic”. It’s designed to build muscle endurance and strength – all by climbing those 4 hills I included into this 45 minute class.

I always enjoy both teaching it, and riding it with my class. I particularly like the playlist for this class – I think it created a great atmosphere  in class. Even my usual Chatty Betty’s were quiet climbing those hills 🙂
